Solved!

Will an Intel AC-7265 Wireless\BT card work in one of the M.2 slots in a 840 G1

HP Recommended
Elitebook 840 G1
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

It's not crystal clear as to the capabilities of the m.2 slots in the 840 (ie USB vs PCI-e) and I am wondering if any one has succesfuly installed an Intel AC-7265 in the 840 g1.  Also unclear if the antennas will reach or if the antennas intended for cell will work.

Hello

 

HP BIOS checks if the WLAN card is one of the model thta could be installed in the factory.

it's useless to try to install Intel AC-7265 Wireless\BT card as BIOS will not recognize and use it.

You will get an error during power on sequence and boot will be stopped.

 

Bye
